Winter................will it ever be spring!
OK, I'm trying to practice gratitude, positive thoughts, serenity etc., but I just don't like winter. It doesn't like me and I don't like it. If I'm to find a positive, it would be that last night we had fresh new snow and quite a bit of it, so everything is clean and covered again.
This has been a bad winter for icicles. We hardly ever get them and both levels of our house have lots of icicles. The one on the left end of this picture is actually 2 icicles - they had grown together and actually came down almost to the bottom of the window.
A lone clump of grasses that surround my birdbath in the front yard. Behind it is the concrete bench - both of these adorn my usually beautiful front yard - at least during the warmest seasons of the year. I miss my front yard....and all the flowers, the rocks, the stones, the grasses.......all the beautiful textures of summer.
A view thru the gazebo to the shed at the back of the lot.
